APPLYING FOR A GRANT

The Wyomissing Foundation invites the submission of grant proposals and respectfully requests that organizations seeking funding carefully review the grant guidelines, process, and timeline published on this website. Links to that information may be found in the navigation menu on the left.

Please Note:
All community and economic development grants will now be required to be submitted through our electronic grant management software, Zengine. Information about using the software is available under the Process section of this website.

Community Grants
Organizations interested in submitting a Community Grant must first contact foundation staff to discuss your request or submit a Letter of Intent electronically in Zengine, in order to gain access to the appropriate electronic grant application.

Economic Development Grants
Generally, unsolicited applications for Economic Development grants aren’t accepted and are by invitation only since these grants must align with the goals established by the Board of Directors and specific geographic task forces.

Please Note:
Thun Family Grants are made only through direct descendants of Ferdinand and Anna Thun. Family Grants are awarded by a committee of family members using grant guidelines specific to the Family Grants Program.

Because of the special nature of the program, the Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals for Thun Family Grants. Do not use the Applying Section of this website to make your request. All applications for Family Grants must be facilitated and presented to the Foundation by a member of the Thun family.
